Virtual Event

In honor of Latinx Heritage Month

Mexico is an upper-middle income country with the 15th largest economy in the world. However, in 2020 more than 50% of the population is still poor and 17% lives in extreme poverty. Mexico has one of the highest inequality levels in what already is the more unequal region in the world (Latin America).

Why is this wrong and what can we do about it? Can social policy help?

Join Dr. Claudia Maldonado, Fulbright-García Robles Visiting Professor at University of Southern California from Autonomous Metropolitan University, Mexico, to tackle these questions and more. This talk will offer an overview of social policy developments in Mexico since democratization and will shed light on the main challenges for social sector reform, including the potential role of migration and remittances as double-edge sword for social development in the country.

The event will conclude with a Q&A moderated by the Price Latinx Student Association.
